Haven't done this in a while. I actually woke up sick and took the day off work. Still feel weird, but at least I can take the time to get over it rather than have to work while I feel like complete crap.
Not much mention of the Tide during the two all-star games on Saturday. Shouldn't matter - we're going to have a very good class coming in, so it doesn't matter if other people take notice right now or not.
The Decatur Daily has a story about who will play for the Tide next season. Pretty good read, but don't put too much stock into it...we've seen how the depth chart can change this season.
Kicker Corey Smith and receiver Chris Jackson both moved in and enrolled for the spring semester. Classes begin on Wednesday. These two will count towards last season's class, so the scholarships will not account for the 2008 class. Booooyah.
We may have lost Tyler Edwards to LSU, but we did pick up a TE transfer: Colin Peek from Georgia Tech. We had actually recruited him out of high school, and now that Chan Gailey is out, he was looking for a new home. Apparently we fit what he was looking for, and we got a good tight end out of the deal. He's enrolling for the spring semester, so he, too, will count against last season's recruiting class, so it won't take away from this season's scholarships. Read more from Ian here.
The schedule is out. Check it out below. Thanks to rollbamaroll.com for the image.
I think I can live with that schedule. I like the idea of having Tulane and Western Kentucky before we travel to Arkansas, and I like the break before the Iron Bowl.
